Custom Helmets?

I've got a big nogen. I found a helmet that fits okay but not great. Specifically I would like to have a helmet with more of a bill for those late afternoons. Does anyone know of any helmet manufacturers that will custom make a helmet to size and specs. Being custom, it will probably have to be glass or carbon. Thanks

Bern makes helmets with a bill up to XXL. Might try them first.

I'm pretty sure Paul can, plus his helmets are amazing! He can even make you a matching squirter boat!

His web site is pretty lame, but his helmets are top shelf!

Another blockhead here. Just bought a Garth surf helmet and it is truly the first time I've had a comfortable fit for my watermelon sized noggin.

Head trip helmets

I just picked up a head trip, and it is very nice. Custom sizing, colors, patterns, and styles. I bought a daffy, and it fits well, but I needed to add a HOG band from Shred ready to make sure it doesn't move while getting worked. It didn't come with a back band, and I like them for whitewater but it probably isn't really necessary unless you plan on spending a lot of time play-boating or swimming rapids.

Or what is his last name? I've used my razor sharp skills of deduction to figure out that the "P" is for Paul but I can't find any Google results on anyone making carbon fiber helmets with the name of Paul and composites in the subject.

Schreiner. He may have just stopped paying for a website. I picked my helmet up from him back in July. His first priority is boats, so he can take a while but they can be completely custom and are top notch. He also has a new strap system with more adjustability than the old style, kept mine from budging in a couple bad swims.
